This guy is pretty much considered an idiot and a genius all at the same time. If you don't know who Joss Whedon is then you probably don't watch much TV or just haven't paid a lot of attention to creators. Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Serenity, Doll House, and tons of others. Some of these are cult classics like buffy and angel, and some are one season runners than somehow didn't make it like firefly (which is probably one of my favorite tv shows ever). So what do you think about this guy and his shows. Like right now I am watching the last of season 2 of Doll House, which is incredible at least this one got a season 2. If you like his shows and haven't seen firefly make and effort to check it out. Happy Lotting.

I remember the first time I encountered Joss Whedon's stuff and that was Watching Buffy. Then Angel started and I watched it as well, I've heard of Firefly and I believe even Serenity by Joss Whedon, but not Dollhouse, atleast not that I know of. Maybe I have, lol. In any case, I wasn't aware that the latter two had only gotten an average of 2 seasons though.... Surprising compared to his other shows, though Angel did only last four seasons, it would have been interesting if it had gone on for more. Did you know that they were actually going to have James Marsters in a series, I think originally they had focused on him instead of Angel, but James said no Thank You and David Boreanaz said "Yes!"

Yeah and Boreanaz has bones going now and it is in its 5th season already and one of the most popular shows on tv right now. Dollhouse may get more than 2 seasons it is in it's 2nd right now still running from what I know. Firefly only got one season (the captain of the ship in firefly is the actor who plays Castle in the tv show...Castle, and one of the actresses from firefly plays the female Dr in Stargate Atlantis) You should check out Dollhouse it is really good. Firefly is amazing and serenity was the movie they made to tie up the loose ends for Firefly. You can probably find most of the stuff at tvshack.net or hulu.com if you want to watch them online. I am surprised Angel didn't go more too but I think some of it had to do with "power creep" where everybody just keeps getting stronger and stronger and eventually you get to a point where the story line goes bananas with the power. Angel never got there but it was heading in that direction, Whedon probably saw it coming and cut it. Thanks for responding.

I've got a little idiot and genius in me, which may be why I love his stuff. My girlfriend and I just found Dollhouse a few months ago, and naturally they just had the series finale last Friday. Bummer. Good, wacky, out of this world, creative show. as were Buffy and Angel. We have 'em all on DVD and will probably waste a month of our free time watching at least once a year. I'll have to check out Firefly, as a buddy of mine who's not into Vamps likes it too.
